Novel fuel cell catalyst lowers need for precious metal

25-Nov-2010

Fuel cells could create a breakthrough for electric cars, because refuelling them is fast and easy, just like your traditional gas guzzler. But there's an obstacle. Current fuel cells need platinum in order to work. And that's expensive. Now chemists from Copenhagen, Potsdam and Hanau have taken ...

Carbon sequestration: Boon or burden

30-Jun-2010

The idea to sequester carbon is gaining support as a way to avoid global warming. For example, the European Union plans to invest billions of Euros within the next ten years to develop carbon capture and storage whereby CO2 will be extracted at power plants and other combustion sites and stored ...

The greenhouse gas that saved the world

Chemistry researchers uncover why the archean world was not frozen solid

19-Aug-2009

When Planet Earth was just cooling down from its fiery creation, the sun was faint and young. So faint that it should not have been able to keep the oceans of earth from freezing. But fortunately for the creation of life, water was kept liquid on our young planet. For years scientists have ...

New Danish research shows how oil gets stuck underground

Nano-research on drill cores from the North Sea might help increase extraction rates of oil in Denmark

13-May-2009

Now, new Danish research may have come up with an explanation as to where and how North Sea oil clings to underground rocks. This explanation could turn out to be the first step on the way to developing improved oil production techniques with the intent of increasing oil production from Danish ...
